Just like to you thank you for the fantastic service you offer, order fishing reel on 23dec and it has arrived on the 24th Dec ,well ahead of time, can't praise you guys enough brilliant
Pro Logic recently recommended John to me to service/repair my bite alarms.
He's a v nice fella - clearly passionate, and took the time to clearly answer any questions i had.
Both the turn-around time and the nominal fee he charged me were bang-on.
Thanks allot John
This is the first time that I have used John to repair and service one of my nasty bcx6601's.I was delighted with the results and would have no qualms in sending him some of my better reels for servicing.
His attitude and communications are first class.I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my pike fishing buddies.
I have not yet established with him if he is prepared to take on my fixed spool reels (summer use) it may well turn out that I do not have to deal with the miserable guys in Wales ever again.
My quite old Okuma Catalina multiplier was giving trouble with the line lay mechanism. In fact the line guide jammed everytime it got the end of its travel on one side. I contacted John and discussed the problem. Some spare parts for the Catalina are no longer available from Okuma but after sending the reel to John I was soon sorted! He carried out repairs and serviced the reel for a very reasonable price in just a few days. Great service and friendly contact - Many thanks John.
Sent a reel to John for a long overdue service, a USA manufactured Penn which required a part ordering. John kept me informed via phone that there may be a slight delay, but the part was obtained very quickly and the reel returned like new at the very reasonable price of £20 for a full overhaul including parts.
First class Customer Service again! Highly recommended.
Excellent and fast service. Highly recommended.

Thanks for great job.
Many thanks again John for the superb repairs on my reel. Great service. Great value.

Regards Howie

Thanks again for sorting out the 2 fox stratos reels - marvelous service
Have used John before for reel repairs. Again as usual a quick turnaround and inexpensive repair/service on my Penn 320gti leverdrag. Highly Recommended.
Just had work done on 2 top end Tibor fly reels. Great service and amazing price: half of what i had been quoted by a London shop. Very highly recommended. TU John... Ian Reilly
Sent my husbands reels back for repair/service.Very quick and excellent response.Will be sending another reel for John to take a look at.Highly recommended......Thank you.
Can not recommend enough. Was passed johns details by prologic uk as was trying to source a receiver for my 4 alarms. Upon initial contact, everything was explained to me in full with different options. I spoke to john and within 72 hrs of posting my 4 alarms off, I had them back, paired with a receiver and presentation case. Cost was absolute minimal and if anyone needs advice or service or just to pick someone's brains, john is they guy. Just trying to look at my ageing carp gear to see what else I can send away. Thanks again.
fantastic service provided. parts and labour really cheap and turnaround was all done in 5 days. sets the standard others should try and achieve! well done everyone at reelvalue, outstanding.
Had my okuma reel repaired. Found the service very good & reasonably priced. Would use again.
I can't fault the service . John was very helpful and sorted the problem out with my
Okuma reel. I would recommend him to anybody and will definately be using him again.
Very reasonable price and the job well done.
Very pleased with the service John provided. My Okuma reel was fixed and returned in double quick time.
After a fruitless month checking tackle shops for spare Okuma reels a kindly chap at Cotswold Angling Trevor rang the owner company who gave me Johns details here and in 48 hours fixed my problem with spools for both my big pits and trio 30s ( he gave me the best tip to use a 40 size on the trios and their far superior than the original !!!)
Top bloke to deal with ..... I'll be back And have passed his details on to all fellow Tenchfishers too!
Fantastic service from John , my two Okuma reels are now up and running again.I will certainly be using Johns services again. Many thanks, Mick
First time I've used the reel repair service and definitely will not be the last. Excellent service. Would thoroughly recommend!
I was despondent when after catching a lovely 10lb Salmon, I discovered that my rod tip had broken and in sorting out a tangle my reel knob had been lost. Contacted the manufacturers who promptly put me in contact with fisherman john. I telephoned he was out (probably fishing) but his patient understanding answering system gave me clear information as to when he would be back. Called on the day and got a quick yes response. I have your part, this is how you pay, I will send it to you on receipt. It could have been done even quicker if it had not been for an error of mine. A very satisfied customer. I will consider getting all my reels from you. Many thanks.
Brilliant Service, two emails in a matter of hours and the part I needed was sent by return post, the Reel is fixed and I`m one happy fisherman again!
I could not have received better service and I will certainly be using your company for future needs, have also started to recommend you to others and will continue to do so
breaking the handle on my Okuma 50,I was advised to get in touch with John Woodsworth,
say nothing more the knowledge and sevice was totally out standing,arriving home from holiday
handle fitted before suit cases were emptied
Kind Regards,
Charles (Scotand)
First class Customer Service from John Wordsworth again, reel arrived back like new. Someone had attempted a service and fitted incorrect parts. This was fixed very rapidly and cheaply by John who sent a detailed email of the work he carried out along with some sound advice. All this took well under a week.
If you are looking for a service/repair, I can guarantee you wont get a better job or better Customer Service than that from John at Reel Value.
Absolutely brilliant service and unbelievably fast !
I would recommend John Wordsworth to any one with a poorly reel, or a reel that just needs an expert serice.
Excellent service. John left my Okuma reel like new again would highly recommend this service.
Many thanks and will definitely be in touch in the future.
Can't fault john for his work on my okuma it's a new reel I got back many thanks defo use reelvalue again
Excellent service from John. John fixed my shimano stradic and had if back within the week. I know where my reels are going from now on. Excellent service and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommended.

Great turn around service and prices as always. John always phones if any problems or issues and keeps you informed and up to date, this is the fourth year our S A C club has dealt with John not just for repairs but great deals on tackle
Thanks, John, for a brilliant job on my little Okuma reel - great service and very good price. Hopefully I won't mash the gears again, but if I do I know where to go!
Excellent service from John. Great communication - reels sent away repaired and returned within a matter of days. Received a detailed email of the work done and when to expect the reels back. Very impressive. Highly recommended.
Excellent service at very reasonable price will use again
Excellent service spoke to john sound advise supplied parts within a few days ready for my weekends fishing thanks again john
Excellent standard of repair - speedy service too!
Prices most reasonable as well - would never consider sending my reels anywhere else for repair or routine service.
I needed a new part for a couple of okuma multipliers , John has supplied these both times quickly and efficiently great service. Will use again
without this company I woulkd have had to ditch 2 Okuma sonic 360 due to a small thread gone on the spool top nut .These reels are now as good as new because of the knowledge of jon who knew exactly what I needed and sent them in double quick time thanks to you Ive still got a great pair of reels Hurrah.
I sent my reel by first class post on Thursday the 9th. Today Friday the 10th i got an email informing me that the reel had been received, repaired and serviced as requested.Now that is what i call first class service.I wish i had known about REEL VALUE before now because if this is the standard of service they supply i will definitely be dealing with them from now on for all my angling needs. What was equally impressive was the cost.Including postage the bill came to £17.20. That is what i call value for money. Many thanks from a first time customer.
Just has 2 Avet reels serviced and repaired by John whilst i was off on holidays, great quick service and good explanation of the problems and solutions by someone who really knows what he is doing and can do it with good turn around time. Will be going back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.
John, the service on my two multiplier reels was superb to their point that they now work better than they did from new.
Sorry but there is now my at least another 5 reels coming to you for servicing, well after we've finished sea fishing this year.

If your are reading this and have read through other praises they are all straight up. John is very good and does not rip you off, his enjoyment is seeing you back fishing with rod and reel (he repairs rods too) as soon as possible given that there is now growing demand for his second to none service.
John many thanks mate.
I found John to be very helpful indeed and would have no hesitation referring him to friends. I needed help sourcing a 4th ProLogic bite alarm, not not only sourced that for me but re-synced by receiver so all alarm's worked correctly.

Many thanks
Thanks John For a good job done so quickly, and efficiently.
Thanks John,
You have done a fantastic job repairing my Okuma Powerliner 865. For anyone experiencing problems getting their reels repaired, I can thoroughly recommend John. Being in Germany I made many enquiries about the seized drag on the reel but nobody could give me the answer I needed. Having contacted Okuma and Svendsen I was given John's contact details. He said that if I sent the reel to him that he would only repair as necessary, and that if the work was not cost effective then he would let me know accordingly. Fortunately the reel was reapirable at a very good price and the postage back to me was very quick. TO REITERATE; DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT JOHN IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM; HE WILL DO HIS UTMOST TO HELP YOU OUT:
I've just experienced a reelvalue service!, one of my prologic alarms fell sick and
a thorough, prompt and professional service made them better again.
All within a week a great service,
Cheers John.
John is a reliable and trustworthy man, who will go out of his way to help in any way he can. I sent some alarms to be paired up to a receiver, he sent for the parts to be shipped from abroad and sorted my problem out within days.
will certainly deal with him again
thanks john
